Omniscience Discussion

Loizo on Bolas brawl 0.1?

Hi, at first glance the deck looks good but you are missing a few key pieces.

Here's a few weird cards : Omniscience and Sunbird's Invocation - really fun cards but you are not a jodah big mana deck, no reduction of costs and no green to ramp... I should build that :) Mind Rot and Vicious Rumors - not efficient enough and even completely useless in some cases. I would replace those with

if you want to 1v1 : counterspells and big threats like Demanding Dragon Etali, Primal Storm and Niv-Mizzet, Parun

If you want to multi : boardwipes and recurrent threats like Cry of the Carnarium Jaya's Immolating Inferno Nezahal, Primal Tide .

But three colours decks have such a great number of deck building choices that you can get lost in it... It's amazing. I would suggest (most powerful deck I think) grixis spells with a lot of removal to kill later with flipped bolas or combos Primal Amulet  Flip and explosion//expansion

or more fun, reanimator with Isareth the Awakener and Dead Revels , Dire Fleet Daredevil

I do not think this should be an "until it leaves the battlefield" ability. That starts to get really messy when you're dealing with cards from the library. Explaining where the card is supposed to go is going to take up more space, cutting into the space for the interesting text.


As a whole, I really do not like this ability. In constructed, it will be really, really easy to abuse with cards like Mystical Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , and Worldly Tutor , so you will need to have a high converted mana cost to make up for that.

In limited, however, it has the opposite effect. The ability is dependent far too much on luck and what happens to be on the top of your library. As such, if these cards have a high cost, they will not be worth running--in Limited you can't maximize your chances of hitting an Omniscience , so, more often than not, you'll hit some mediocre common. Thus, if the cards have a high mana cost, they will not be playable due to their volatility.

Further, for both Sealed and Standard's sake, the set would have to contain top deck manipulation. But top deck manipulation is pretty firmly in Blue's domain (the other colours tend to send things to the bottom of the library after looking at the top few cards). That's going to make Blue disproportionately powerful, which is a huge problem in Draft.

Overall, I think this would be a fun ability to have on some cards, but the problems with designing it as a core mechanic of a set are myriad.

triproberts12 on Temple of the False God ...

Also, griffstick, while I agree that the correct question with card selection in general is to ask whether a card is good fit, rather than whether it's garbage, I feel a little overcorrection is necessary with Temple. It's a bad card in 99% of decks, but it's in 93,647 EDHREC decks. Players don't seek Temple out for its narrow, late-game ramp application like for Panharmonicon or Doubling Season . They see a second copy of Sol Ring or a budget Ancient Tomb , which is about as accurate as calling Omniscience a second copy of Sol Ring. It drives me crazy that Wizards seems more inclined to put a narrow card like Temple into precons than literally any other utility land.

Unlife on cEDH Advice (UBRW)

I've still fiddling with my cEDH deck but just goldfishing it, it feels very erratic still. Manawise, its fairly consistent in terms of ramp and lands. However, I always feel like I'm a card behind in terms of having all the parts to my wincon. Should I add more tutors and draw in but if so, what do I cut? There is a tertiary combo I'm considering with The Locust God and Kindred Discovery but would it be worth it? I'm running Show and Tell // Omniscience , should I find space for Enter the Infinite ? I know the commanders are ideal for cEDH but it's what I'm challenging myself to build off of. The deck is linked below, thanks in advance.

If you are struggling with speed i Would recommend artifact ramp as It is the only mana accelerant in Blue ( Thran Dynamo , Sol Ring , Worn Powerstone ,...)

Also for explosive turns you could add a High Tide as well as an Extraplanar Lens

Regarding Win-Cons a friend of Mine is running an Omniscience into Enter the Infinite into Laboratory Maniac into some draw spell which comes out of nowhere most of the times and wins. It is also fairly Hard to interact with in a not so competitive environment.

Hope I could help and feel free to Check out my chain veil Teferi deck for ideas for draw spells ramp etc

Hissp We've tried flash hulk but it ends up with a lot of dead cards and you get a situation where the deck gets pulled in half strategically. You also end up with the old identity crisis of "why not Tymna". But we feel you on this one, for sure.

The thinking with Flash Rector is that because Rafiq is already running all the time warp and draw, it might be possible to chain those effects together with Omniscience as another way to get the Seasons Past combo online. It's a baby right now, so definitely look to the Bant Hammer as the more tested Rafiq list, but if this works it could mean big things for the general.

also Omniscience would be funny if you got it out and Door to Nothingness is always a good choice for any protogeneius deck
